WASHINGTON, DC — Vagabond is sponsoring discounts across all vīv-enabled vending machines to celebrate National Vending Day on March 7.

The National Automatic Merchandising Association has organized National Vending Day to recognize the hard work that vending operators put into their businesses 24/7, 365 days a year as they deliver comprehensive market, breakroom, and workplace vending and foodservice solutions. National Vending Day will enhance awareness of the fast-changing convenience services industry and enable route service operators to spotlight their involvement in their local communities.

Vagabond is encouraging increased consumer interaction at machines by offering 25-50% discounts on all purchases at vīv-enabled machines throughout the day, exclusively through vīv. Vagabond will reimburse its member-operators so they receive the full retail value of the items sold.

Operators are encouraged to promote the vīv-exclusive discounts and National Vending Day to their accounts. They have access to marketing resources from Vagabond and NAMA.

In addition to the National Vending Day celebration on March 7, operators with vīv-enabled machines have the freedom to create their own discount campaigns. Operators can work with the Vagabond team to customize promotions on vīv based on their company needs.

For example, operators can discount their slower-selling products; they can zero in on products with near-term expiration dates, and they can promote sales of newly-introduced items with the tool. In addition, discount promotions can be offered at new locations as an incentive for patrons to use vīv to purchase their favorite products and to generate buzz around the new machines.
